Dear Writers, Readers and Reviewers alike;

I am A. Barone (Anjirika @ ff.net). I am 24 years old, I live in the greater GTA and as of June 2010 I was certified to teach Primary/Junior students. Getting a job is easier said then done, so to pay the bills I tutor and work retail.

I have always considered myself to be a writer and this is a place to showcase some of my work. Before April 2012 I had a lot up here but I culled a lot because I want to try and get some of those shorter stories published in magazines and the like.

My motto when it comes to writing is “You can’t wait for inspiration, you’ve got to go after it with a club” and while the club is harder to wield than pure inspiration it sometimes allows me to get the story finished.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my page and I hope that you’ll enjoy what I’ve got up here, even if it’s not a lot

Have fun reading & reviewing and of course, writing.

~A. Barone
